We recently reported that Disney World was restricting the use of neck gaiters at the parks. Disney has now updated its policy regarding face coverings.

Face masks are still required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) and Cast Members. You will need to bring your own face coverings and wear them at all times, except when dining or swimming.

All face masks (whether disposable or reusable) must:

  • Be made with at least two layers of breathable material
  • Fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin
  • Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
  • Be secured with ties or ear loops and allow the Guest to remain hands-free

The new addition to this policy states:

At this time, based on guidance from health authorities, neck gaiters and open-chin triangle bandanas are not acceptable face coverings.

Gaiters and bandanas will not be allowed to be worn as face masks at Disney World.
